I have updated everything to 1.44. Has anyone else had this problem and if so, a solution? Surely this can't be normal. I have the dynamic power on FYI!

    See it here:




    Can you put up some pictures of how everything is mounted? I have been doing 3+ miles on 100MW on the tuned antennas of the diversity. On the micro it's been about a mile before I see it switch into way high power.

    I must admit the Horus still buzz's when the Crossfire is on high power, but it then goes down to almost unnoticeable at lower powers.

    One other thing the "tee" standard antenna will need an extension to clear the Horus and so you can orient it correctly unless you bend it, for me I have the tuned straight antenna that works well on the Horus, still buzz's but as I said on low power not a major problem.

    Steve.
    Make sure to Turn off the internal transmitter. I don't get any humming or buzzing with my TBS tx on my taranis. But if you do you can line the inside of the box top edge with some Foil Duct Tape. about 4$ a roll Some others use Copper.

    Here are some pics of my setup. Have a screwed something up? I am having a slight bend to the antennas from the tail of the bird. But that shouldn't matter right?

    Thanks!

    That all looks right. I would have set the antennas a bit more away from each other but that's it. Maybe someone with more experience can chime in?

    When installing a Crossfire Micro RX on a wing plane. Can the antenna be horizontal to the ground as long as the TX "T" Antenna is horizontal to the ground also?

    It's probably bad information but I usually just leave them out the bottom of the airplane. :/

    Yes it can but your going to pointing the null at yourself every time you turn. Not ideal.

    I try to support the companies that create the foundation of the Hobby as much as I can even if its a buck or two extra and that is often through ordering direct. So when I read this I figured good it can't be much longer so I waited... so can "anyone" say how long it will be?

    In order to get the most out of a diversity system you want the have the antennas form a V shape. That way when one signal gets weaker in a bank the other will get stronger. In the current setup you get no benefit at all due to cross polarization losses.
